BBBSGM is applying preventive measures to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 virus

We want to protect the people we work with as well as all the members of our team. Due to the preventative measures enacted by all levels of government, we wish to inform parents, volunteers, our partners and the public, that Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Montreal (BBBSGM) is taking precautions to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

With recent school and daycare closures, we will be suspending all activities and workshops for a period of two weeks starting Monday March 16th.

We will continue to monitor and follow all government health and safety measures and we advise our volunteers to apply hygiene measures recommended by Health Canada. In case of symptoms, we ask our volunteers to cancel their meeting and stay home.
